Re: CHARLESTON AND VENDETTA Serbian film



Wow, I watched the DVD tonight and it was well worth the two-year wait. This is the best Serbian film that I have ever seen (that wasn't an Emir Kusturica film)!

I don't think I've ever seen such a well-done male-fantasy film as in TEARS FOR SALE (not male-fantasy as in gay, but a total fantasy film for men). This movie just kills all those B-movies that star an all-female cast of hotties and ass-kickers. If I was a porno director, I would definitely steal the storyline from this film to make the best storied porno ever. Basically, the story goes like this: All the men have died off, killed in the wars, two sisters have to bring a man back to the village for the village women to have sex with anytime, and to prevent a curse from happening. The sisters and all the women in this film are all hot! The story is more than that of course, which involves love and the reoccuring theme of anti-war in most former-Yugoslavian films. Fast paced, funny, amazing filming style a la Jeunet and Gilliam, great music, great special effects. Just a perfect movie!

After waiting forever for an English-subtitled DVD, i'm not so upset that the Australian PAL DVD video quality was just okay. After all, the Serbian DVD is full screen and there is no other option at this time, so it's better than nothing. The video quality is anamorphic widescreen, but it's a bit washed out and full of ghosting. At least it's not pixilated or interlaced looking, but the video quality isn't that great for such a visual film like this. It's not problematic enough to ruin the movie-watching experience, but if this movie gets a better DVD version elsewhere, I'll be all over it. This movie was made for blu-ray by the way. Maybe there will be a UK or Australian blu-ray of this film that will come out next. The Dolby Digital 5.1 Serbian audio option, however, rocks! It's a great active audio. The English subtitles are perfect - however, they are a bit small, but it's not a big deal. There are no extras on the DVD.

MOVIE: 10
VIDEO QUALITY: 7
AUDIO QUALITY: 9
EXTRAS: 0



This DVD is a definite blind-buy!

EDIT: The UK PAL DVD is exactly the same (same video/audio quality, same small English subtitles, and same lack of extras) as the Australian PAL DVD, only that the UK PAL DVD is cheaper.

Re: CHARLESTON AND VENDETTA Serbian film

Did anyone buy the UK PAL DVD? I'm curious how the video quality compares to the Australian DVD.

I received the UK PAL DVD today and watched it.

The UK PAL DVD is exactly the same as the Australian PAL DVD. Same video quality, same audio, same small English subtitles, and same lack of extras.

So basically, the UK PAL DVD is the one to get because it's cheaper.

This movie NEEDS a blu-ray version!
